This vigorous viticella type clematis is a profuse bloomer all Summer once it is established. The light pink flowers have a nearly iridescent glow to them, and can often appear white with a sheen of pink. The 4" blooms will dazzle your trellis or fence from June to September once it begins blooming. Please note that since this is a 1 year plant it make take 2-3 growing seasons, before you will see the prolific blooms, however it will be worth the wait for this hardy and vigorous perennial vine.
Pruning Group C. This variety grows only on new wood. Prune to 2-3” above the ground in late Winter/early Spring.
This Clematis came in a little draw-string-baggie; well moistened, good root system and about an 1 1/2 inches of new growth straight out of the bag. I put it in a seedling pot to make sure it won't die out, and it had taken off like a rocket LOL ! It is about 12 inches in about 3 weeks !! It will be planted in it's permanent position in the garden this weekend ! I can not wait to see this beauty in action over the next few months.
I ordered the Fairy Dust Clematis in March. I planted it in mid-April, using a large pot in front of a tall, wooden trellis. The flowers just bloomed this week (mid-May). I couldn’t be happier! The color is an iridescent white/pink. Wish I could share photos!
The plant root was packaged well. I planted it later in the season and only saw a little bit of plant growth before it went dormant. I am excited to see what it does next year. Hopefully I will get to see some blooms.
